These mosquito sticks really do work well and they smell good too. Like other reviewers have said, light them about 15 minutes before you go out on your patio, and no bites!

Smell great! They seem to be working - I can sit out on my patio without getting bit by gnats and mosquitos.

This is the second time I've ordered these. They work as well as anything else and smell better than everything else. I'm chemically sensitive and the sandalwood scent does not bother me. We live in the Adirondacks in upstate, NY.

Love these mosquito sticks..............they allow me to be outside comfortably. I burn two at a time for good coverage. They are a deterrent.

We've used these mosquito sticks for years and I bought them from another source. They were getting hard to find so I started looking for them elsewhere.I am so happy to be able to get them from Isabella. Please continue to have them available. Here in the South, you have to have something going if you want to sit out in the evenings. These sticks are great and actually will last about four hours. Thanks again.

Have not tried it yet...having a birthday party on the 20th of August and will use them at that time. Great idea if it works. I will rate it a 4-5 star if it works

Mosquitoes seem to find me wherever I go. I can't even sit on my patio at times. I used the sticks last night and no bites!

These are nice. Smell good, not as effective as the chemical-laden ones, so sometimes I'll use more than one, depending on the space and the bug situation.

I love the product. It works great. . .

These sticks are really effective at keeping mosquitoes away. We can't walk onto our side porch without being bombarded by mosquitos. Once we light a couple of these sticks, not a mosquito can be seen, heard or felt for hours. These are worth every penny.

These incense sticks seem to work fairly well. We are outdoors mostly in the evenings and mosquitoes are a serious problem in our area. We use a combination of a natural bug spray and these sticks. I get bit A LOT less. I have another brand that are cone shaped and it made me appreciate that you can pick these up and move them from area to area.

This is the best mosquito incense I've ever used! I'd been buying another brand, but couldn't get any in time for a party, so I bought these. Love the smell, and very effective, especially as a supplement to soda bottle mosquito traps.

Like the catalog copy says, the sandalwood sticks create a mosquito-free zone, but watch carefully where the protection ends--the mosquitoes are just beyond. The only mosquito bite I got was when I stepped beyond the perimeter. I could see the mosquitoes buzzing and thought I could make a quick step out to water a plant and ZAP! I got bitten. The scent is pleasant, so use as many sticks as you need to secure your outdoor area. Recommended.

These sticks do a fairly good job at keeping those pests away I don't think there's truly anything that will keep your outside area mosquito-free, however, these last awhile and smell nice.

Too simple, I thought, but these really work! Here's a tip fill a small clay flower pot with sand or pebbles to use as an incense holder place the stick upright and the ash will drop in the sand. Then you can extinguish the stick by inserting the burning end in the sand it'll light with no problem the next time. One stick lasts through three leisurely dinners for 2 on our deck.

I love this product. I enjoy working in my yard and usually around dusk i go in because of the mosquitoes. Sometimes I've already been bitten. I have used the sandalwood sticks twice and have not been bitten at all. I won't go out without them. I will be ordering more today. Thanks for a great product.

Second time purchasing these and they really do work!

I was skeptical about these foot long incense sticks really being able to dispel mosquitoes, but they really do work! It does take a little time, so the instructions to light them 15 minutes before you want to occupy the area are right. I had to do some repairs near my patio, so I lit a stick in a pot near the spot and waited. I had seen lots of "skeeters" there, but when I went back later, they were gone! I did my work without any bites. The scent is not overpowering, but pleasant.

We don't have much of a problem with mosquitoes...I like the smell of sandalwood and use them in the backyard when we have a BBQ.....a nice added touch!

These types of products I 'm always suspicious of - but this is phenomenal! Just one stick in outside room by a 3 level outdoor pond with Koi and lots of insects was effective enough to sit outside without bites - and I'm usually the main mosquito menu! Love it, and I'm back to get more.

This is the best mosquito repellent for our outdoor area that I have ever used! I only needed three for our small deck and we enjoyed a bug-free dinner for hours. I felt good that I was not using toxic chemicals around our eating area and they actually had a pleasant, "background" scent.

We have used these for years. They do discourage mosquitoes.

These have a pleasant smell and seem to keep the mosquitoes at bay if you put them in a ring around your patio. They do burn for the 3 hours time as it says on the box and they do not leave too much of a mess. I was very pleased with them and may be ordering some more!

Luv these! Easy to use, smell good, & WORK!

The sticks are fragrant, not overpoweringly so, and do a good job of controlling mosquitoes. We sit in our backyard comfortably after lighting one or two of the Sandalwood sticks.

I just finished a 6,000 mile motorcycle trip to the Yukon and Alaska...in June...during mosquito festival days! . . . I opted to try a kinder, gentler option . . . We also used the incense sticks in the more heavily mosquitoed areas and they too worked quite well. Thanks so much for doing the research and carrying such excellent products!
